Country Adventure Safari, Dominican Republic

Our trip to the Dominican Republic would not have been complete without a tour of the island culture. Here’s Brittany’s take on our excursion.

Sometimes on a trip, what you expect to be the least fun will really surprise you. When the man we consulted about tours, Manolo, told us to try the Country Express tour, we were a little put out. It didn’t seem that fun from the description- visiting a cacoa farm and a local school? How about…no? I’m glad Manolo was able to convince us to take the tour. The Country Express Adventure through Nexus and Vacation Express was a once in a lifetime experience. We learned more about the Dominican Republic in one day than through the other four days of our trip and a lifetime of World Geography and History lessons.

The Cats Go Pro with Purina & GoPro Giveaway

My family thought I had ventured into crazy cat lady territory before, but their suspicions were confirmed when a package from Purina arrived in the mail. “Hey, look,” the kids exclaimed, “it’s a Go-Pro Camera and coupons for Purina Pro Plan for cats.  We can use this Go-Pro to take pictures of all our activities this summer.” “The Go-Pro is for the cats,” I informed them. Total silence.  The kids walked off mumbling under their breath about “finally succumbing to crazy cat lady status.”  Naturally, I will allow the kids to use the Go-Cam because our cats are lazy and cantankerous.  If I invited friends over to watch an evening of Cat-Cam videos, my friends would take in the three hours of sleeping cats and then never visit again.   Plus, getting my fingers bitten off while trying to attach the Go-Pro to the cats didn’t seem fun.
